WIN challenges conventional thinking and reimagines traditional corporate environments by making vital opportunities more accessible to today’s professional women.
WIN was established to create a community for women to come together, support each other, and advance their skills in negotiation.
THE NEED FOR WIN
While women comprise 46% of entry-level positions, only 6% of S&P 500 CEOs are women
Women are still only paid approximately 76 cents on the dollar to men
72% of employed women in the US work in management and sales, where negotiation skills are essential
Only 30% of women negotiate their job packages as opposed to nearly 50% of men
Women who negotiated offers at their current jobs feel more invested and a sense of greater reward
According to the Government Accountability Office, it will be at least 40 years until the U.S. reaches gender parity
